    Hi, during my second attempt at making cheese, I accidental let my curds overheat during the cheddering stage, recipe said target temp was 32 degrees C, a pointlessly long conversation with my mother in law, meant I was too long away from the stove and bottom of the pot the curds reached 72 degrees C, I carried on and pressed the cheese, as its drying it feels a little softer, Question is should I just bin this now, will the over heating have killed all the culture ? as I was planning to share these cheeses over Xmas table I don’t want make anyone ill
